About the Museum Mill

The Museum Mill is the middle of the three mills in a row near Schermerhorn. Together they form a beautiful, typically Dutch picture. The Museum Mill is open to the public from April 1 to November 1.

You can view the mill from top to bottom and see exactly how a water mill works and how the Schermerpolder was formed 400 years ago when the Schermeer was drained. You will also get an idea of how people used to live and work in a polder mill. A film is shown in the cinema that provides more information about the history of the polder and the development of the polder drainage. The mill runs during opening hours, subject to weather conditions and work.

The visitor center is wheelchair accessible. The mill yard is uneven due to height differences and the pavement is irregular, but wheelchair accessible. Due to the nature of the object, the mill is unfortunately not wheelchair accessible.
There is a disabled toilet available.
There is a changing table for our youngest guests.

You can enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or soft drink in the Museum Mill. In the summer we also offer ice creams and the terrace is open with a view of the polder landscape.
